SchoolTutoring Academy has played an important role in improving our son’s confidence and attitude towards school. His grades have also improved steadily throughout the school year.

SchoolTutoring Academy has not only improved my son’s standardized test scores but also his high school math and English grades. Test Prep Academy has not only improved my son’s standardized test scores but also his high school math and English grades.
SchoolTutoring Academy Increased My SAT Score By 200 Points
My son’s math marks in high school have always been weak so I found it very beneficial that his ACT tutor worked on solidifying his fundamentals while prepping for the ACT.
SchoolTutoring Academy gave my daughter the confidence she needed to boost her SAT score Thank you!
SchoolTutoring has played an important role in improving our son’s confidence and attitude towards school. His grades have also improved steadily throughout the school year.
My daughter was able to improve her test scores after a few months of tutoring with SchoolTutoring. However, while raising test scores is great, the real payoff is in the self-confidence that she gained.
I just wanted to send a quick note to say thank-you! My son is very impressed with his tutor and looks forward to each session. What’s particularly amazing about this is our son has never really looked forward to math or school for that matter!
We are so happy with the results of your tutoring program and academic support. Homework time was such a stressful evening for the entire evening before we brought your tutors into our home. Thank you for all your help!
Our daughter, a first grader, struggled with basic reading and handwriting. When she began with SchoolTutoring she was almost a year behind her class. Within a year of being enrolled, she is reading above her grade level and has the confidence to match.

Chalk Talk: Should My Child Take AP Classes?
AP classes are advanced placement programs offered to upper high school students. The purpose of these classes is to prepare students for the intensity of college courses. At the end of the school year, high school students taking an AP class take an AP exam. If they pass this exam with a 3-5, they could be exempt from taking a similar course in college. AP courses offer a fantastic opportunity for students to get a jump-start on their college education. But before students sign up for AP classes, they should consider what they want to study in college. Not all AP courses offer direct advantages to the student. For example, taking an AP government course in high school might not be as beneficial as taking AP Calculus if the student is planning to pursue a degree in Mathematics or Engineering in college. Students should enroll in the AP classes that will offer the best transition between their high school and college education.
